HFS provided support as part of a project management team, overseeing the construction of military medical facilities throughout Health Facility Planning Office – Schofield Barracks (HFPO-SB). HFS’s key purpose was to successfully coordinate and partner with all project stakeholders, including HFPO program and project managers, facility support staff, architect-engineering (A-E) firms, the USACE, and more. HFS imparted general and medical-specific technical advice, constructability support and information, and ensured projects met required standards.
One of the projects HFS supported was the new behavioral health/dental clinic addition to Desmond Doss Health Clinic (DDHC). Here, HFS provided construction management support for the construction of a 73,401-SF addition with 284 rooms in Phase 1. The new clinic consolidates dental services, physical therapy (PT) services, and behavior health services into one building. Meeting State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) and Department of Public Works (DPW) environmental standards, the facility is in the Historic District of Schofield Barracks. The clinic also adhered to Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) standards and connected/integrated with some of TAMC’s existing systems. The DDHC clinic addition opened one month earlier than contractually projected and was within budget.
Another project HFS supported was the construction of a new 429-stall five-level parking garage for the US Army Health Clinic. Being the first and only parking structure at Schofield Barracks, the garage includes 18 handicap and 16 motorcycle spaces, and stands adjacent to a renovated ground level parking lot.
